U Houston Rockets has turned down Avery Bradley’s $ 5.9 million team option for 2021-22, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Bradley and the Rockets have agreed to part ways this summer, Charania adds, and the veteran goalie should attract interest from the contenders and the teams he played for earlier.
The Rockets won the selection twice NBA All-Defensive team from the Miami Heat last season. He averaged 6.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game during the 2020-21 campaign while pulling 37.4% from the field.
In addition to the Rockets and Heat, Bradley has also played for the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies.
The 30-year-old had some of his best seasons with the Celtics but did not win an NBA title until 2020 as a member of the Lakers.
While Bradley will arouse interest this summer, he is certainly not the first free-agent point guard available. Kyle Lowry, Mike Conley, Lonzo Ball, Spencer Dinwiddie and Dennis Schroder are among the first PGs available.
